I am listing this for Dad and put my 100% feedback rating on the line for him and this El Camino. In the last 2 years we are trying to reduce the number of toys he has , and I have sold for him a backhoe, Segway, boat, Polaris ranger, Goped, and a few other items. Now the El Camino.  He bought it at a auction and it was represented as a ground up restoration, well that was partly true, but I know he has spent a boatload on all the items he replaced with new to get everything working. A VIN number could not be found on the car by 2 "experts" (not me). So the NC DMV issued him a new VIN, and he has a clear title, not a salvage or rebuilt. We think the car was assembled from 2 cars, but I have no way of knowing. The emblems say its a SS396 but it has a 454 crate motor in it, and it's a rocket and drives great, everything works including the A/C.  Here is what I do know:

  • 454 
  • New wheel bearings, tires, springs and shocks
  • New control arm bushings
  • New water pump
  • New chrome alternator
  • New power steering pump
  • 2 new kick panels
  • New rear view mirror
  • New dash lights
  • New shift panel indicator
  • New brakes
  • New rear window
  • Billet pullies
  • Headers
  • New exhaust system
  • New A/C compressor
and much, much, more.  This car is easily a daily driver and is stored inside all the time. If you want to inspect the car before bidding, just message me and I will give you my Dad's phone number and you can set up a time to see it.  If you have questions, you will need to contact him as I am not with the car he is.
The car is in Tryon, NC.  

No Reserve!!!  We will not end the auction early, so don't ask!!!

Why the Corvette's Performance Data Recorder can be illegal in some states

Fri, 26 Sep 2014 13:28:00 EST

The Performance Data Recorder with Valet Mode available on the 2015 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray seems like a fantastic tool for many owners. Whether they are taking 720p video while lapping the track in their new 'Vette, or just want to protect their purchase from inconsiderate joyriders, the system offers a lot of functionality in one package. However, one of the PDR's features might get buyers in trouble with the law, and it has nothing to do with recording some illicit high-speed driving on a favorite back road. The problem hinges on the various state laws concerning a person's right to privacy.
According to a letter posted by Jalopnik, Chevy dealers are asking 2015 Corvette owners not to use the Valet Mode portion of the PDR because it records audio in the cabin, in addition to performance specs. That's a problem because privacy laws vary from state to state with some requiring just one side's consent to tape sound and others requiring all parties to agree. According Jalopnik, 15 states mandate everyone's permission beforehand, but it's not clear whether these numbers are up to date. (Actually, the report varies, saying 13 states in some places and 15 in a list.)
According to the letter, Chevy is already working on a software update for the near future to rectify the issue. It's possible that simply adding a warning to drivers and the ability to turn off the audio recording function in Valet Mode might solve the problem. Obviously, this doesn't preclude Corvette drivers from using the performance aspect of the PDR, and owners are free tape lap after lap at the track.

Chevy Sonic shreds like a skateboard

Tue, 19 Mar 2013 19:14:00 EST

Despite the fact that the 2013 Chevy Sonic is a fun, plucky little thing - especially in ever-so-slightly hotter RS guise - it is not, in fact, a skateboard. But don't tell that to rapper Theophilus London.
In General Motors' latest spot for the Chevrolet compact, London needs to make a quick run to the store for some milk. And even though, once again, the Sonic is not a skateboard, it ollies, pops and gets air because, you know, it's just so much fun to throw around.
If this video looks familiar to you, it's because this is the full ad that we first got a preview of in Chevy's longer, full-line spot, where the brand's "Find New Roads" tagline was introduced. Scroll down to see this dedicated Sonic spot, along with the older ad, and remember, the Sonic is still - still - not a skateboard.

C7 Corvette turbo with 1,000 horsepower promised from Hennessey

Mon, 25 Feb 2013 19:01:00 EST

If you can't wait for the next-generation Chevrolet Corvette ZR1, Hennessey says they will have you covered. The Texas-based company has announced it will offer a spate of upgrades for the 2014 Corvette ranging from a range of bolt-on options all the way up to a 1,000-horsepower, twin-turbo system. Buyers can start with a cold air intake, cat-back exhaust or stainless steel long-tube headers, but Hennessey says it will also offer up three stages of forced induction mayhem should those bits and baubles not provide enough thrust.
Those choices start with a supercharger system good for up to 700 hp, though Hennessey will gladly ditch the blower in favor of two turbos. Doing so will spin the crank to the tune of 800 horsepower all the way up to a certifiably ludicrous 1,000 ponies. There's no word on how much these tricks will cost you - or when they will be available, as we're guessing they haven't gotten their hands on the car yet - but you can head over to the Hennessey site to drop them a line if you're curious.
